“Ok stop for drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for a drink and it was ok. Conveniently located next to Westonbirt Arbouretum this hotel is typically Cotswolds. A good range of reasonable value drinks but when we were there the servuce was very unfriendly.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that the service in the bar seemed unfriendly. Your comment will be passed on to the staff who are actually all very pleasant people, but perhaps don't always remember that they need to be much more 'smiley' and proactive, especially when busy.

We have stayed here twice the last two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed both. The staff are friendly, helpful and professional. The accommodation and food were excellent and my husband was able to get around quite easily on his mobility scooter.

Our second stay at this friendly inn, ideal for visits to Highgrove House
Arranged by the hotel on certain dates during the year, there are also other
Interesting local places e.g the lovely town of Tetbury and Westonbirt
Arbaretum(almost next door) .
The most outstanding feature of this hotel is the quality of all the
the dining experiences Main Restaurant particularly,but also Bar
Meals, and the Breakfasts. Altogether a very pleasant part of the Cotswolds.

Room Tip: All appear Ok

Kids at the grans- the other half finishing work at 4 pm. A perfect weekend ahead :-) Just needed somewhere to stay. After checking some specialised offpeakluxury websites I came across this fantastic hotel. Upon checking in we were immediately upgraded to a better room at no extra charge and wow!!. A beautiful room overlooking the gardens- spacious with separate seating in form of a sofa/table and chair and an extra table for those that need to work extra-huge comfortable bed which was big enough to get lost in :-) Included in our package was a full sized bottle of champagne/chocolates and a full set of Molton Brown toiletries- the misses loved it.
The staff were all attentive and professional without being too 'over the top and fake' but very friendly. We had also the 8 course taster menu and I have to say the quality was fantastic. The chef does love his work and deserves the accolades. The downside/negatives?... hmmm... Yes I was not able to stay longer on this trip.

We visited this hotel for our wedding anniversary and were very pleased with our room and all the amenities.
There was a wedding reception taking place but this did not interfere with our stay as the staff had allocated us with a quiet room as requested.
The restaurant was very comfortable and the food excellent.
Very convenient for Westonbirt Arboretum and would definitely stay again as we want to visit Highgrove which is also close by.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main hotel and the room was very quiet and comfortable. We did not see any of the r...

We arrived for a 3 night stay at the end of Badminton Horse Trials, so the hotel was, initially, very busy. However, we were given a lovely room in one of the annexes, with a super king bed, which I had requested. The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We ate in the bar, and the food was fairly typical bar fare, but good nonetheless. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent, a real treat. I was very impressed that none of the additional items, such as smoked salmon or smoked haddock came with a supplement. Service was first class. This hotel is in a lovely part of the country, and we will definitely visit again, hopefully soon!

I am very pleased that you enjoyed our lovely Cotswold hotel and gardens. We love Breakfast, it is sometimes the only meal a guest takes with us , so we try to keep it fresh, interesting and really great quality. We are lucky enough to have a lovely Breakfast chef who delights in making home made muesli and a variety of muffins and cereal bars. Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review, we hope to welcome you back again in the future.

Hotel and grounds were lovely, restaurant and bar offered great food and wine but the bedroom was like a sauna. No air con and very small window overlooking a patio area.
Room was nice, facilities were good but it very difficult to be comfortable when it was so hot. I suppose as the hotel is old then you cannot expect all the mod cons but it would have been nice to have them
Only stopped the one night so didn't ask to be moved or kick up any fuss.
Evening meal good and breakfast was pretty special - not your usual routine cheep bacon and sausage but some really nice quality options, lots of fresh fruit and extras - v v nice.
Staff helpful and attentive.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with air con if you can.

Thank you for letting me know your feelings about your recent stay at the Hare and Hounds. I am very pleased that you enjoyed the hotel generally, but am so sorry to hear that you suffered in silence. As we say, all very well in hind-sight, but we would have been only too pleased to supply you with a fan. It is lovely to have a hot Summer, but it definitely doesn't suit all of us.
